't get talked about nbc, cnn or any of the networks. what he just announced as he can do a energy tax tomorrow and not have broken his word and energy tax of course whacking the middle class. he can raise income taxes on people a year from now, which is why what he wanted to do was kick out the bush rates for people less than 250 per year. he can't get -- and this is where you talk about dual mandates. were talking about marginal tax rates on higher income people and successful small businesses. that raises 400 alien. this other taxes in addition to rate increases he wants to include. he talks about the rates. over a decade. so he is $800 billion he plans to raise from higher income people. the size of the dead if he gets that in his budget, assuming he gets the tax hike, he raises a trillion dollars in debt over the next decade. so having solved less than 10% of the problem company then comes back and says that he was going to pay the 8 trillion? .the energy tax, which pours the treasury department has seven times people have been trying to subpoena the information. they don't want t

so i want to learn something, not just be entertained. >> and it's not as exciting as cnn or fox but you get the real story and i like it >> these viewers watch c-span on comcast. c-span created by america's cable companies in 1979 brought to you as a service by your television provider. >> with just five days to go until election day, ann romney called on the people of ohio to vote early for her hubt mitt. she said he will not fail women and the american people. this is a half hour. >> thank you. i am so pleased to be here today. what a lovely group of people. we are into the final days. isn't this exithe? and we're going in the right direction. it's just wonderful. we are so pleased to be here. i've had a lovely opportunity to travel with ann through the months now and through things and i just see in her so many things that will be so lovely in a first lady. we are so lucky to have her, aren't we? [applause] and the reasons that i'm here are not much different than the reasons from before. i care very deeply about my own family, obviously that's first and fore340st in my mind.
was very struck that cnn found its groove with john kean and the message board. if you were looking for any race, anywhere, you could find the information you were looking for. i was struck by margaret hoover , a political columnist who is so beautiful youth is so smart and every time she speaks, you think is she's smart. who are some of the people starting to blow you away or the institutions you thought played a major role? >> i would say going back to my original theory -- sasha eisenberg and his book, the victory lap, he nailed it. he was saying it before anyone else, that this was going to come down to turnout and techniques and so i give him a lot credit. might beraid this controversial, but i think nate silver, since this was the year of the polls, he nailed it. on the political side, having covered ted crews, i'm really impressed, and he's going to be a player. he could be a republican supreme court nominee if not a candidate for president or vice president. >> i don't think many people have heard that much about them. >> he becomes the third former supreme court clerk to be serving
women who have shaped the world and a top 10 cnn hero. we're very pleased to have her as a guest here at the chicago conference on big ideas.

, and we don't know about virginia, of course. cnn had some exit polling. they're not making any going to s so i'm not repeat what they said but i would think if you're watching cnn you would be pleased by projections are in terms of the exit polls. >> the night is not over yet. stay with us. >> announcer: "your voice, your vote," election night 2012, live from times square, diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos. >> and good evening, once again, from here in times square, and it is the crossroads of the world, and it is election headquarters for election 2012. i am here at the big map to tell you we have three more projected winners to give you right now. from georgia, we are ready to project based on exit polls that governor romney has won in georgia which has voted republican six times in the last seven elections. alabama, down in the south again, governor romney has, once again, become the projected winner and in new jersey, president obama is the projected winner tonight. it was devastated, as you know, by that superstorm sandy and still awaiting word how many people in the storm zone
. it is not as exciting as cnn or fox. you get the real stories. i love it. >> darryl and mary l ynch watch c-span on comcast. >> the battle ground states in campaign 2012. a look at the politics in wisconsin. >> we focus on the state of wisconsin. we have the national political reporter for the journal sentinel. a couple of facts we have gathered when it comes to this state. we are looking at cannes electoral votes. we are looking at an unemployment rate of 7.3%. in composite, the president won reelection. can we start with the economics of wisconsin, particularly with that unemployment rates? can you elaborate on the unemployment rate and what it means for the state economically and politically? >> the unemployment rate is below the national rate. if you look at the trends in terms of job growth, our job growth has been slower than the national average, certainly slower than ohio, which is a battleground state that has had a positive economic trends, better than nevada at the other end of the spectrum. we are in the gray area for president obama. we had a huge, fierce debate over the recall
. i just happened to catch the comments he made on cnn last night. he was very grateful to the tennis feeding vehicles he had seen just after his press conference. -- the 10 vehicles. we appreciate any out reached to let people know what we are working on in staten island. we are in tottenville, hugenot, and we are all over there. we're continuing to build on that. again, a quick summary. in new york, a massive feeding effort under way on long island with fixed feeding sites in nassau and sussex with more coming. s.i., queens, brooklyn, the bronx, manhattan, and the two on long island. 40 shelters, but i think you are most concerned with beating capacity. we have already shipped 307,000 meals into new york. for new jersey, we also have 30 shelters open in the garden state and we have four mobile kitchens that are capable of 80,000 meals per day with another 350,000 ready-to-eat meals already there. both cases include kosher meals. there are disturbing food as well. we are stealing of the full resources of our feeding capabilities in all of the impacted states. >> it looks like we have
of obama speeches and 49 minutes of romney, cnn. >> that's fair. >> numbers have a liberal bias. shapes and letters. >> in hollywood brad pitt is an actor, director, political activist, cologne marketer and now a furniture designer. architectural digest reports he has teamed up with frank pillar row to design a dozen high-end furniture pieces including tables, chairs and a bed and he's been doodling ideas for furniture for years now. he's putting the drawings to work. the bed is a big one. it will fit his and angelina jolie's entire family all of them. two of them and all six of their children. >> how many electoral votes is that? >> bill: what i'm looking forward to. a brad pitt bed. so your prediction again is barack obama -- >> 303 electoral votes. >> bill: that seems to be the magic number. politico that's what they're predicting. that's what i'm predicting. peter came up with 303. we should tell people, we've got the big -- "huffington post" has a great interactive map that you can pick your states. h
is that the republicans now that he got reelectedded. >> suarez: they are just responding to cnn's projection of obama as the winner of the next election. rahm emmanuel, i guess this is a vindicating moment for you, huh? >> not for me. it's a labor of love for my friend and our president. a labor of love. i have to tell you the mayor said to me just before we go on the air, i have to go back to my wife when the president is declared. i'm sorry you're still here with me but we're almost done. what does this change? >> given the candidates could not have been different clearer about their differences for the country and the direction, you have probably some areas where there's more energy for the president than there was in '08. the american people are ready for his leadership, his policy directives. he wants the republicans to work with him. you cannot continue to obstruct and take immigration reform. the republicans stay on the course of obstruction, they will be a minority party nationally. it's wrong for the country and wrong for them politically. >> suarez: mayor rahm emmanuel of chicago thanks for
. perhaps you'd like to share with us your thoughts, your experience. did i see you on cnn one night as you were working with your constituents, trying to meet the disaster in your area. mr. pallone: i want to thank my colleague from california for having this special order and talking about the hurricane damage and what needs to be done in the future. i have to say that the damage to my district was catastrophic . we had many towns where initially at least it looked like the majority of the homes and businesses were wiped out. now, when we go back and look again, some of them can be saved. but we're talking about thousands of people who lost their homes and many of others who lost their businesses. it really created a humanitarian crisis in that first week or so because we were trying to get fema in with the disaster recovery centers and with the red cross and the salvation army. and really over the first week the main concern was just humanitarian, trying to find shelter for people, trying to make sure they had food and water and clothes. but i have to say the response was overwhelming. s

[applause] >> by way of beginning, last night, we were sitting up late talking about today's talk. you are quoted in it. gosh, i don't have a copy of it. magically, there was a copy. i went to the page. it was called "touring dixie with lbj." written may 10, 1964. this was meant to be. here are the opening lines about lbj in which lynda is featured later in the column. touring the south with president johnson is like going back to the old evangelical chautauqua circuit.
